ROFLMAO du jour

So, I just joined a Yahoo! group. Apart from Freecycle, this is the first such group I’ve ever joined. It’s Knitting 4 Children, and it looks like it’ll be fun. Charity knitting for hospitals – yessir. That’s my idea of a happenin’ party.


I got an email from the list, and it had a bunch of ‘sponsored links’. Charity donations…charitable organizations…knitting yarn…woodcraft…witchcraft


So I had to do it. I had to click on Witchcraft. And the following list of gems came up:

$DEITY save us from auto-generated ‘sponsored links’. If anybody ever wanted to know why I don’t do the AdSense thing…ta da!!! This is why. I would be well and truly pissed if something like this came up on my site as a ‘sponsored link’, instead of ‘part of a blog entry about how silly these things are’.

Hmm. I wonder if any of them could do a ‘yarn stash enhancement’ spell…

My previous blog ( also had / has those links in the sidebar. At one time, ads for, uhm, adult toys (from amazon) kept popping up! Another reason for changing provider *snickers*
